Smaller: There's been a few turns taken and now I think I'll work on this side just so I can quilt something besides trees and rectangles with Xs in them.
I mark my quilting lines with a pencil crayon. It usually fades during the quilting process. I made a boo boo on one side border a couple of days ago and I knew I didn't have a really good eraser so I went to Staples to see what they had. I could have gone to my local art store which is just around the corner but I didn't think of it.
I did buy a Pentel product also but decided to try this one first. It comes in a two pack and it worked extremely well. Not much eraser residue either. I must remember to let my quilting buddies know. We have used a couple of different erasers and they did an OK job but this one got every mark out.
Bigger: I needed a break from quilting. It's dark here because it's raining and I needed a colour infusion so I sewed up a couple more blocks. The dark green is scraps left over from cutting up the border for the quilt above. The squares sat around for a while because I had the light green in my mind for the other squares but it wasn't handy at the time. I have some red to cut up and some dusty pink. I like making these because they don't take long to do at all and I get to pair up fabrics. I love using up small pieces too. The red block above has one square that's different because I ran out of the other fabric.
Have a great and safe weekend whatever you're doing.
Thanks for the info on the erasers I will have to try that one.ReplyDelete
I love both quilts!!!! I really must try the bottom one, it looks like a great scrap buster. Your quilting looks great Dolores! But I'm curious as to what a pencil crayon is, I've never heard of that?ReplyDelete
I am sure that this work requires patience and a calm mind...I could not do it, too crazy, though I really really want to...someday- like learning to knit, or build a house out of toothpicks- I admire your talent.ReplyDelete
Your quilt is coming along nicely (interesting info about the eraser) and I love the little scrappy pieces.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog Dolores. I am in awe of quilters. I maybe(???) one day will get up the steam to try!!ReplyDelete
Love your quilts.
Oh your quilting is coming along so nicely. Have fun with your scrappy quilt.
